  •  So exactly what part of Sharia law (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    would be used in place of British law?  Would the parts of Sharia that violated the liberties allowed under British law be banned in Britain?  What if a minor daughter wants date men outside of her ethnic/religious group?  Does she get chained in the basement or worse?  Why would you need a Sharia "law" to live by the standards that you set for yourself, unless, by enacting this law, you mean to force it onto people other than yourself?  I understand wanting to allow people to continue using their own traditions, however, this looks like Britain may have really opened up a can of worms on this one.  Not that I'm advocating the Oklahoma route.  In that state in particular, it is ridiculous.  Its a stunt meant to earn brownie points for local politicians without them actually having to do something productive for the citizenry.
